water damaged eris, OS still works!


Deleted User

Hey guys,

So i dropped my HTC eris in the sink the other day. It was submerged for about 5 seconds. The phone then just stopped working and i tried taking out the battery and putting it back in and it wouldn't get passed the screen with the 3 droids on skate boards. I think went ahead and put my phone and battery in rice for a good 18 hours. Tried it again, and now the phone gets passed the 3 droids on skateboards to my lock screen. I receive text messages, the clock works fine and my 3g works fine too. Only problem is my touch screen does not work. I am wondering whta the problem is, and how i can fix it? You think its the digitizer???
